The Partnership for Nutrition in Tanzania (PANITA) supports the Ministry of Health’s World Breastfeeding Week Celebration

  |   SUN Civil Society Network

PANITA actively supported the Ministry of Health and other partners to organize activities at the national, regional and districts levels to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week.

As members of Tanzania’s nutrition multi-sectoral technical working group, PANITA provided technical and financial support to the week’s activities and encouraged its members to be involved in different activities happening in regions and districts during the WBW. The multi-sector nutrition technical working group supports the major national nutrition programs in Tanzania and includes senior staff from nine line Ministries. The group provides technical expertise that supports the SUN Movement, including by advising on policy, and supporting the development of implementation guidelines and resource sourcing.

At the national level activities included a media seminar on breast feeding, press conference, TV and radio programs, community engagement, a public rally, infant and young child feeding counselling and mobile advertisements.
